l took a trip to Brisbane recently to visit the V & A Museums
exhibit that was being held in the Art Gallery there.
There were lovely large banners all over the city.
This one was just across from our hotel.
This one we found in a walkway.
After we checked out the location of the art gallery, we took a walk around Southbank,
and found this lovely covered walkway.
The bougainvillea had just recently been trimmed.
The city from the south bank.
These can be found just near the exhibition and convention centre.
Quilts in a different art form.
The next morning found us bright and early having breakfast at a nearby café
that Meredithe had recommended, and we now also recommend.
The Blue basement Café is in the ABC building in Southbank.
We met up with friends who had travelled from Sydney,
and enjoyed a cuppa in the sun.
And even got tattoo's!!
Quilts of course!
And a chance meeting with Rachel from Blue Mountain Daisy blog,
which was delightful.
While no photos were allowed inside the exhibition,
this is the book from the V&A, which has the quilts we saw.
You can also google images to see many of the quilts.
This is the Brisbane version. They are basically the same, just different covers.
This is a must see exhibition if you can. Its on still till the 22nd September,
and we are so glad we went.
The quilts, the fabrics, the whole exhibit was wonderful.
l am sure we will see many wonderful renditions of these quilts in the coming years.
Thanks for visiting.
